Britney Spears announces miscarriage with Sam Asghari
Britney Spears has lost her “miracle baby”.
The singer, 40, announced in a joint statement with her fiancé Sam Asghari via Instagram on Saturday that she suffered a miscarriage.
“It is with our greatest sadness that we have to announce that we have lost our miracle baby early in the pregnancy,” the statement read.
“This is a devastating time for any parent. Perhaps we should have waited to announce that we were further along. However, we were too excited to share the good news.
Spears and Asghari, 28, added that their love for each other is their “strength” right now.
“We will continue to try to expand our beautiful family,” the statement continued. “We are grateful for all of your support. We kindly ask for privacy during this difficult time.
The post, signed “Sam & Britney,” also included a caption that read, “We are grateful for what we have in the process of growing our beautiful family 💝 Thank you for your support.”
Spears announced in early April that she and Asghari were expecting their first child together, and what would have been her third. She shares two sons – Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden James, 15 – with ex Kevin Federline.
“Marriage and children are a natural part of a strong relationship filled with love and respect,” Asghari wrote in her own post confirming the news at the time. “Fatherhood is something I’ve always looked forward to and don’t take lightly. It’s the most important job I’ll ever do🙏”
The “Gimme More” singer has been engaged to Asghari since September 2021. The fitness guru announced via his Instagram Stories last weekend that the two have finally set a wedding date.
“Our lives have been a real fairy tale. Happy Mother’s Day to you, my future queen,” he captioned a photo featuring Spears. “Besides, the big day has been set!” But no one will know until the next day.
